Fork in The Road – “It was the perfect day for a hunt.  And by that I mean it was cold, damp, and miserable.  Cradling the steaming cap of my thermos, though, I could not have been more ecstatic.  Read more…

- Master of Mesa Vista - Roberts County lies in the northeast part of the Texas panhandle, its 924 square miles of high, lonesome emptiness occupied by fewer than 1,000 hardy and independent souls. Some of the most extreme weather on the planet – tornadoes, drought, blizzards – can be found there.  Read more…

  • late_fall_newsletter

As we approach the end of the year, we find ourselves reflecting on the past 12 months.  It’s been a good year for Field Sport Concepts.  We would like to extend our best wishes to all of our valued clients, partners, and friends for a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a New Year filled with joy, peace, and prosperity.

On these cold dark mornings, it may be a bit harder to pry yourselves out of bed and to get going.  However, knowing we can look forward to meals of venison chili, roasted duck, and ruffed grouse with wild rice ensures that we are up well before the sun on our days off.  Whether you are heading for a duck marsh in Tidewater, Virginia or tracking that elusive buck in south Texas, late fall can be an exciting time of year.

If you are considering large scale improvements for your land, this is a prime time, now that the foliage has fallen and it has not yet snowed, for aerial mapping in order to identify the various elements and landforms of your property.  It is also a good time of year for wildlife habitat maintenance such as clearing invasive plant species to support more diverse flora and fauna communities and to increase the value of your land.

With spring well on its way toward summer and as we shake off the last of the chilly mornings, we’re looking forward to getting back out on the water, saddling up for a trail ride, and shooting some clays at the local course.  It only takes a few minutes to remind us why there are few better arguments for preserving the rural sporting lifestyle than by simply getting outside and enjoying the plethora of activities available.

For a couple weeks every fall, the trees give us a front row seat to one of the most spectacular shows in nature.  Whether you’re still enjoying the performance or taking in the cool, crisp air as you rake up the now-fallen leaves, it’s the perfect opportunity to take in the splendor of the natural world.  We encourage you to get out there on the trails or build up a pile of leaves for the kids (and yourself) to jump into!

In this edition, you’ll find a number of stories about efforts by the affiliates at Field Sport Concepts to reach out to the local community, some of our most recent work, and ideas for repurposing underutilized golf courses.  We have been busy further developing our social media presence, giving you even more opportunities to learn about our mission on FacebookTwitterLinkedIn and by subscribing to our blog.  And as always, if you know anyone who might benefit from our services, please consider forwarding this newsletter along to them.

Our experiences on a recent trip to south Texas reinforced the importance of the synergy between working landscapes and conservation, our company’s mission since 1993.  To find out more about our company and our approach to rural land conservation please check out our inaugural e-newsletter.

As we drove south from San Antonio, we watched as the Texas landscape changed, becoming flatter, and the expanse of sky bigger.  As the sun set, the clouds that gathered over La Paloma Sola Ranch exploded with color and shapes rarely observed in the Piedmont of Virginia.  The ranch is a model for conservation and wildlife management, raising trophy deer while maintaining the south Texas plains for future generations.  John Gurasich wrote of his passion for the ranch and his family’s experiences learning how to be responsible stewards of the land.

La Paloma Sola

“La Paloma Sola has been a special place for our family for the last 25 years.  It has been a place to escape, spend time with friends, create lasting memories, and enjoy the wildlife.  The ranch is located in the rugged and wild brush country of Webb County, Texas.

South Texas is famous for producing incredible white tail deer.  Over the last 30 years there has been a transition in land use from cattle ranches to wildlife ranches.  The state helped this transition by introducing the Wildlife Tax Exemption, which recognizes wildlife management as an agricultural use.  Read more…

Bundoran Farm Conservation Community

Unique in both concept and execution, Bundoran Farm in Albemarle County, Virginia is described by the Urban Land Institute’s book Conservation Communities: Creating Value with Nature, Open Space, and Agriculture as a rural community that combines farmland and forest preservation with limited residential development.  Recognized by Audubon International as a Certified Gold Audubon Signature Sanctuary (the first in the Commonwealth of Virginia and the first working farm certified in the program) and consistent with the requirements of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act, the plan for the 2,300 acres of Bundoran Farm maintains the farming operation while allowing for the careful placement of home sites. Verdant pasture, orchards, and well-managed forest interspersed with riding and walking trails as well as the spectacular views of the farm, the valleys, and the Ragged Mountains in the distance cultivate a sense of a place that is classically Piedmont and deeply rooted in local tradition.  Read more…

Cows, Plows, and Wildlife

As I visit with landowners across Texas, there is a common theme that eventually surfaces as we discuss the ins and outs of wildlife management. The question of whether or not landowners, particularly new landowners, should allow cattle to graze their property.  I have yet to find a consistent answer applicable to landowners as a whole. My usual response is to first give careful consideration to the condition of the property, and secondly to take into account the landowner’s goals.  Read more…

Greetings from Field Sport Concepts!  It has been a hot and dry summer here in Charlottesville and we’d like to head into fall refreshed by looking again at a few vibrant Field Sport projects.  Recently, we’ve also been working to develop our blog as a hot source for content related to conservation, working landscapes, and current events.  Check it out and subscribe here!

Do you have an interesting project or event to tell us about?  Give us a call or drop us an email.

The Fork Farm and Stables

Rural Conservation at its Finest

Situated at the confluence of two rivers in southern North Carolina, The Fork is an 1,100 acre working farm with a wide variety of topographic features, fields, woods and flood plain.  Field Sport Concepts was retained to assist in the re-imagining of its potential value for outdoor recreation.

A feasibility study was performed in order to ascertain the property’s suitability for a combination of uses including equestrian sports and breeding programs, wildlife habitat and management, and sustainable, environmentally friendly farming.  What we discovered was a rural landscape steeped in Native  American and colonial history, enriched by a local agricultural  tradition and ready to be molded by the creative eye of an outdoor enthusiast and committed conservationist.  Read more…

Little Mountain Ranch

Lounging along the northwestern slope of Little Mountain in Highland County, Virginia, the property stretches from the ridge top to the valley floor along the Jackson River.  This rich landscape offers views from a rocky ridge, trails through forested slopes, and wide open meadows in a fertile floodplain.  Field Sport Concepts Ltd. produced a master plan for Little Mountain Ranch devised to enhance the existing natural resources and landforms, preserve wildlife habitat, and introduce opportunities for rural recreational pursuits.

In order to enable the owner to put the entire property under easement with the Virginia Outdoors Foundation, McKee Carson, the FSC land planning affiliate, formulated a “by-right” development plan illustrating the traditional rural lot allowance for this land.  This plan was employed to appraise the post development value of the property and, thereby, to determine allowable conservation tax credits.  Read more…

Stream Corridor Bioengineering

Poor land stewardship on this central Colorado ranch left the new land owner with multiple areas of severely eroded stream bank.  Riparian cattle grazing decreased habitat complexity both instream as well as along the riparian corridor. Degraded stream banks and a loss of habitat biodiversity resulted in excessive sediment loads, decreased spawning habitat, lack of instream structure and an overall deficiency in aquatic and terrestrial production.  Additionally, a previous restoration attempt left over 200 large boulders in stream and plugged numerous side channels.

Trout Headwaters Inc., after a thorough assessment, developed a stream design that would address and combat these problems. THI’s stream design improved bank stability, instream habitat and water quality while creating naturally functioning channel characteristics. The construction of bioengineered “soft” banks, specifically suited to the sites hydrologic and geomorphic conditions were implemented to achieve THI’s project goals.  Read more…

  • Oakhaven_ranch

Once again summer it upon us and that means it is time for the FSC Summer Newsletter.

Oakhaven Ranch

Over the past 25 years, Blackburn Architects has had the privilege and pleasure of working on over 100 equestrian facilities designing barns and other equine facilities in a variety of settings and climates for projects both small and large in scope. Despite the various components that come into play with each project, the firm strives to create equestrian facilities that fit each client’s lifestyle and farm management methods with respect to the vernacular of the site and, of course, the health and safety of the horses who inhabit the barns.

The naturally beautiful yet rugged terrain of the Texas Hill Country inspired a project that reflects our design philosophy.  Oakhaven Farm, near Austin, Texas, is designed as a peaceful equestrian retreat for the personal use of the owners’ family and their horses. Local resources harvested from the site such as stone and cedar timber allow the equestrian facilities at Oakhaven Farm to unobtrusively complement the land it occupies.  Read more…

Playa Secreta

Luxury Resort, Gulf of Fonseca, El Salvador
Embraces Environmental, Social and Cultural Sustainability

Panorama International, a Field Sport Concepts’ affiliate, is designing a new resort and residential community in El Salvador.  Playa Secreta, situated in a natural amphitheater overlooking the Gulf of Fonseca, has been conceived as a totally sustainable luxury resort destination.

The present state of the land reflects past indiscriminate agricultural and logging practices which have caused loss of topsoil and eliminated natural barriers to catastrophic erosion.  Therefore, it will be necessary both to remediate its landforms and water sources as well as to develop systems to sustain them into the future.  In this evocative setting, Playa Secreta seeks to have a truly minimal impact on the environment during its construction as well as when it is in operation.  This veritable city will incorporate the best technology available for conserving energy and water resources.  Read more…

The Jackson River Club

Lying lightly on the land, spans two miles of Virginia’s finest trout fishery.

Flowing from its headwaters in Highland County, Virginia to where it meets the Cowpasture River to form the James, the Jackson River is one of the most pristine, scenic and in some stretches, untouched rivers on the east coast and certainly one of the finest wild trout fisheries in Virginia.

The Jackson River Club, conveniently located just 10 miles from the Homestead Resort, is a picturesque property, an outdoorsmen’s dream. Abundant wildlife including deer, bear, grouse and turkey flourish in and around the club’s 750 acres which adjoin several thousand acres of the George Washington National Forest.  Read more…

With the transition to spring we can once again look forward to days in the field enjoying the bounty of recreational opportunities found in nature.  Below are a few ways FSC has been working to make these opportunities even more enjoyable.

Colorado Mountain Ranch Stream Restoration

Field Sport Concepts affiliate, Trout Headwaters, Inc. stream and wetland restoration project benefits Colorado mountain ranch property.

Stream and wetland restoration work was completed on the Sleeping Dog Ranch during early spring of 2009.  The project was an acclaimed success and is described in this brief case study by FSC affiliate, Trout Headwaters, Inc. 

Tumbling out of the San Juan Mountains into the Powderhorn Valley, Cebolla Creek gains speed and volume as it collects water from hillside springs and mountain snowmelt. Making its way north to Blue Mesa Reservoir in Gunnison County, the Cebolla offers some of the best dry fly fishing in Colorado. Read more…

Beretta Trident Program

The Beretta Trident Program was introduced in the United States at the Safari Club International meeting in Reno, Nevada, January 22, 2010. Initially, this program is designed to provide sportsmen and women an objective assessment of sporting venues offering wing shooting and/or shotgun shooting sports in the United States, and ultimately, of any venue of interest, including sporting clubs, gun clubs, shooting estates, and leisure real estate, world-wide.

Beretta, the noted purveyor of quality firearms for over 500 years, has partnered with Sporting Heritage Group to manage all aspects of the program. Sporting Heritage Group will employ a unique rating system to make its assessments and grant Beretta’s quality endorsement. The program is intended to advocate for the traditional heritage of the sporting life while providing much needed consumer confidence in selecting sporting destinations.  Read more…

Inaugural Symposium

Residential Development and the Working Landscape: Collide, Contain, Coexist or Coalesce

Located at Bundoran Farm in Albemarle County, Virginia, The Baldwin Center for Preservation Development is a non-profit foundation that describes its mission as “to showcase innovative practices in agricultural preservation, environmental stewardship and sustainable growth”.

To further its mission, The Baldwin Center sponsored its inaugural symposium, Residential Development and the Working Landscape in October 2009. McKee Carson principal Bob McKee participated in the symposium along with more than 50 others from private, public and non-profit sector interests around the country representing farming and agriculture, forestry, outdoor recreation, land trusts and conservation, development and real estate. They were joined by professors from the Universities of Virginia, North Carolina, and Massachusetts, as well as Ohio State and Harvard. The major non-profit organizations represented were The Nature Conservancy, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, the U.S. Green Building Council and the Piedmont Environmental Council.  Read more…
